A bunch of guys got together in Granbury, Tx this weekend and took a tour
of this shop.
Some great work going on here.
Here's some pics from the tour.
Except for the last four....

If I heard him right, the spoiler and the hump (hard to see in the pics) are grafted from a late model Monte.
They're doing similar to the 57.
Jeff, how far is the 57's quarter moved out, and what are they going to do to the leading edge to finish it off? It almost gives it the Batmobile feel to the back end.

I think he moved the quarters out about 2 1/2 inches on each side.
They will be finished off with vents for cooling the brakes and tranny.
If I remember right.:rolleyes:
It's got the transaxle in the back and I thought he said something about that needing cooling too. :confused:

Jeff that spoiler on the 55 looks like one from a pontiac grand prix. I don`t remember ever seeing a monte with a spoiler that looked like that one.

Yeah, I saw one (Monte) the other day and it had a ducktail type spoiler.
